Ad Te Levavi

The words "Ad te levavi" have special meaning for Catholic musicians because this is always the first chant shown in every edition of the Graduale, every Graduale, from the earliest years of the Church. Many generations of Catholics over many hundreds of years all over the world have associated this chant with the beginning of the Church year. It can be sung and should be sung in any Roman Rite parish as a way of marking the beginning of Advent.
